Updated! Red-band trailer for Kick-Ass 2 starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, and Jim Carrey is here!

UPDATED!: Added some screencaps and the new poster. Enjoy!

Get ready to throw down!  The first trailer for KICK-ASS 2 is here!

I've been reading the KICK-ASS comics since they started and have enjoyed them thoroughly; over-the-top, hyper-violent, and a fun exploration of what would happen if your everyday, average citizen decided to just "be" a superhero.  Certainly, we've had people dress up and "fight crime" on the streets in real life, but none with the consequences of what you see in the KICK-ASS comics/movies.  And, that's probably for the best, as that would likely put a stop to these "superheroes" right away. 

Matthew Vaughn's KICK-ASS was a mostly faithful adpatation that brought these crazy characters to life in a way that was believable and fun.  Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Nicolas Cage were a blast and with the majority of the castmembers (suriviving ones, anyway) returning for the sequel with a healthy addition of newcomers, KICK-ASS 2 is sure to, uh, kick ass, at the box office. 

Get some! (and here's a link for non-US viewers having trouble with access to the MTV page):

Here's the lengthy synopsis for KICK ASS 2:

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

KICK-ASS 2, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey, John Leguizamo, Lyndsy Fonseca, Donald Faison, Lindy Booth, Yancy Butler, Morris Chestnut, Clark Duke, and Olga Kurkulina starts cleaning up the streets on August 16, 2013.
